The drag strip at Beech Bend Raceway is what many of us would consider to be the natural habitat for the muscle cars present at MoParty. Since the heyday of muscle cars all the way up until now, Dodge, Chrysler, and Plymouth have always been forces to reckon with at the drag strip. There's no better way to show off that big Hemi, radical Max Wedge, and even the turbo 4-bangers of the 80s.
Mike Wynnyk is no stranger to MoParty, but this year he has taken "disturbing the peace" to a new level. Mike, a retired Sergeant of the Edmonton Police Service, brought his Duster last year, then equipped with a small block Wedge motor, 904 transmission, and was consistently running in the low 10s. While that's nothing to complain about, Wynnyk's current combination has him running with the quickest cars on the property.
This year, the Duster has a Gen III Hemi motor bolted to a GM Powerglide transmission. But the big difference maker is the pair of turbos providing additional atmospheric pressure to the Hemi's internals. Holley EFI controls this new powerplant which has gone a best of 7.89 down the 1320. Running firmly in the 7s makes Mike's Officers vs. Outlaws Challenge a lot more interesting.
Wynnyk is a part of the Blue Line Racing Association, a non-profit that is dedicated to promoting legal racing at the track. At events the BLRA attends, they like to call out an "Outlaw" for a little heads-up racing. With his new combination, Wynnyk can set his sights on the biggest, baddest "Outlaws" MoParty has to offer. MoParty is the last stop on the BLRA tour, as they've previously hit Saskatchewan, Oklahoma, Texas, and now Bowling Green along the trek.
